Good afternoon,

I recently purchased a MacBook Air and iPad Mini. After doing some research of how I could utilize the iPad mini as a second screen to my MacBook Air, I came across iDisplay.

For those of you who may not have heard about iDisplay, it allows up to 35 devices, via Wi-Fi to be used as external screens (mirrored or independent). I purchased it a few days ago and have been very impressed with it.

I often tether my MacBook and my iPad to my iPhone and I can then use the iPad as a separate "monitor" for photoshop palettes, Lightroom's second display or any other app that I wish to display on there.

So far it seems like a fantastic product which I enjoy using and haven't found any real annoyances or instability issues with.

It also has a Windows client should you want to extend your screen from there. iDisplay can also be used on your iPhone to be used as a remote control for various applications running on a computer.

Cheers!

Just wanted to add that I wouldn't consider using his setup for serious editing but it's perfect for quick on the road editing.

Cheers!

I use Air Display -

It came in very handy earlier this year when I was on travel and my MacBook Pro took a drop cracking its screen.  Air Display + iPad saved the day(s).  But as someone mentioned earlier, this is not meant for serious processing.

Hi Jason, I am using the Adobe Nav app on my iPad in conjunction with a 27" imac. Here's what I like about it: seamless integration with Photoshop CC, nice size tool icons, and whether I am using a mouse or a Wacom Intuous 5  to navigate the image, I am finding it faster to use than most keyboard shortcuts. here is my current workign set up. The iPad is in a Wallee shell which it turn is connected to the manfrotto Magic Arm via a Tethertools Wallee Connect.
I also use the Connect+Wallee combination in various ways (generally  CamRanger is involved as well) when shooting.

Full disclosure: I have no business, financial  or professional connections with any of the above companies.
